THREAD: After the #TreeOfLifeSynagogue #shooting, the #KrogerShooting before that, and the +14 bombs sent by the #MAGABomber, it's crucial that we call #RightWingTerrorism out for what it is, but we also clearly need to talk about #WhiteSupremacy in the 2018 election.
We celebrate the truly #HISTORIC number of #women and #POC running for office in 2018, but we also refuse to ignore the volume & range of explicit and implicit #racist attacks almost every single candidate of color has faced in this election. That's also #WhiteSupremacy in action
Let's be clear: #POC running for elected office have ALWAYS faced hurdles to victory defined by the strength of #StructuralRacism and our country's long-standing culture of #WhiteSupremacy. But 2018 has taken it to a new level.

That the media isn't talking everyday about how deeply ingrained racism is in the modern-day GOP is a travesty. #MonkeyThisUp
DeSantis's remark is merely the latest in a LONG line of increasingly-explicit racist rhetoric from Republicans.

In the 1970s-2000s—with some exceptions—the GOP at least did not make open appeals to white supremacy/anxiety. That hesitation is 100% gone with Trump's election.
Remember, GOP's reliance on racism/bigotry was ALWAYS there:
—Reagan starting his '80 campaign near Philadelphia, MS with a "states' rights" speech
—GHWBush's Willie Horton ad
—Gingrich's '94 campaign to appeal to "angry white men"
—GWBush's '04 support of anti-gay propositions
